Muffled sound when recording

Does anybody know how to get rid of a muffled sound when recording? It's as
if somebody has put a blanket over the speakers when I listen to it.
I did a test on my other computer and the audio sounds fine but this one
definitely comes out muffled.

If the same source sounds good on one system but bad on another, clearly
the source is OK but one system has problems. Either the bad system has
a very weak high end or there is some software conversion problem.

Can you elaborate on this a little bit please? As is what do you mean by
weak high end and software conversion problems? The good system is my old HP
which is at least 7 years old and the bad system I just bought this year :-\
Would buying a stereo mixer fix the problem you reckon?

By high end, I meant high frequency response which may be a sound card,
speaker, or software issue. Since you have not indicated what the format
of the sound source is nor what hardware and software is being used to
play it, it is pure educated guess work to point to a problem.

Are you playing wave files, audio CDs, mp3, wma, or what? Give this
group more information and you will get better answers.

After reading a bit on homerecording.com they said that you can't run an
ordinary mic through your computer without a pre amp, I didn't realise this
because my old computer worked fine so I guess it must have a built in pre
amp.
I put my mic in front of my guitar amp and ran the mic through my keyboard
amp and into the computer and wha-lah no more muffled sound.
Now I just need to get rid of the buzz created by my keyboard amp (which I
think is an earthing problem or something I don't know anything about
electronics) :-\
